The ‘CC’ has given way to ‘LF’ as Rexnord upgrades its popular case conveyor chains, the CC600 and the CC600TAB with new low-friction versions – the LF600 and LF600TAB.
The move to low friction conveyor chains has been gaining momentum in recent years, according to Troy Markland, National Product Manager for Power Transmission at Industrial Solutions Australia.
“The market is evolving. Every plant is looking for chains that last longer and wear less frequently. When you consider that a typical plant replaces between 500 to 1000 feet of conveyor chains per maintenance cycle, the cost savings become significant with longer-lasting chains,” says Troy.
The premium low friction case conveyor chains by Rexnord are manufactured in The Netherlands and are now available in Australia through Industrial Solutions Australia’s businesses – namely CBC, BSC and Webster BSC. “Our customers had heard about these chains being available overseas, and now we have them available locally across all of our branches,”
